Beyoncé has released her remix of Flawless with Nicki Minaj in her latest attempt to make the internet explode. If you’ve heard anything at all about the remix it’s this: Beyoncé not only brings up the elevator incident, but she does it twice. TWICE.
The remix is solid and Minaj brings her A-Game (although we’re not feeling her MJ line), but Beyoncé’s repeat of the line “Of course sometimes shit goes down when there’s a billion dollars on an elevator” is a bona fide show stealer. Did she really say that?
We’re just sitting here, listening to Flawless, when all of a sudden the word “elevator” comes at us like a freight train.
And we’re supposed to act like we didn’t hear it? Now what do we do?
Did she say ‘billion’ with a ‘b’? Bamn.
Is she saying that Solange and Jay Z were fighting over money?
Is this line supposed to steer the conversation away from theories that the fight was based on Jay Z having affairs?
When are we allowed to begin the Q&A section of this listening party?
Even Kanye be like…
We just can’t believe the most private singer in the world brought up the most famous fight in the world.
Let’s all back away slowly and pretend like nothing happened. It will be easier that way.
